So, dear reader, I am off to the Camden Crawl tomorrow.
I've never been before. I am mildly concerned that I will not cope with this two day musical pub crawling extravaganza.
I've been to festivals and gigs all over but the crawl has always eluded me with its siren call of 25 alcohol licensed premises in two days. I will be sensible, I will pace myself and see as many bands as I can in that time.
I've downloaded an app and found some comfortable trainers (superga naturally) I've arranged with a very kind friend to stay at their place in Brick Lane.
Particular highlights I'm looking forward to are the band Au Revoir Simone and Wolf People. Mostly I'll be trying not to get lost or lose my friends and partner. Avoiding the usual Camden suspects (juggling man, I'm looking at you) and dodging the late night purchase of falafel or unappetising chinese food.
I'll be back in the shop Sunday, ready to spill the beans on exactly what it was all like.
